We are proud to present a new release called FDM 5 Preview: it improves on the previous builds and fixes some bugs. There are still a couple of issues that we are working on (you can see the list below). Below, you can also find a list of new fixes featured in this release.
WARNING! If you are working under Chrome or Firefox, Google Safe Browsing might block the download for some unknown reason. First of all, the URL is clean, click to view the VirusTotal report.
Secondly, we want to ask our user community to help us deal with the problem and give us a clue as to why that might happen if you have any kind of insight.
When installing a new build, you will be asked to uninstall the previous installation of FDM 3. Please note that FDM3 uninstaller will ask you whether you want to remove your download list/settings/etc. Answer NO to keep the ability to move back to FDM3 without losing anything!
Never forget to BACK UP your old FDM 3.x *.sav service files BEFORE installing and testing new FDM 5 alpha. They may be too large to be properly converted to FDM5 format or broken during coversion.
